Jared Leto Tapped To Star As Hugh Hefner In Biopic

(Radio.com) Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto is set to take on a most interesting movie role: late Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leto petitioned director Brett Ratner for the role.

"Jared is an old friend," Ratner said. "When he heard I got the rights to Hef's story, he told me, 'I want to play him. I want to understand him.' And I really believe Jared can do it. He's one of the great actors of today."
